About this Cook
I am a mother of a beautiful 28 year woman, a fiance to an incredible man, and future stepmother and grandmother! I have always loved to cook and consider myself rather resourceful. I had to be, since I was a single mother for many years, so I learned alot along the way.
My favorite things to cook
I love using a pressure cooker. I grew up watching my mom use this wonderful tool, and I am surprised how many people don't know how. It really captures all the nutrients of food, and cuts cooking time by 2/3rds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I ALWAYS make Thanksgiving dinner. It is my favorite by far. It took me 25 years to perfect my White & Cornbread Sausage Stuffing!To die for, if I do say so myself.
My cooking triumphs
I practically can go to a pantry, find whatever, and make a meal out of it. I had a friend who told me that I could make soup out of one shrimp! :)
My cooking tragedies
My early years of cooking Thanksgiving... and a raw turkey...ugh!

Eggplant Parmesan II
This is a GREAT method to cook eggplant...so much easier and cleaner than frying. I always "tweek" recipes. One thing I did with this one is use about a cup of ricotta, 8 oz. of mozzarella, parmesan and 1 egg mixed together, and make it a middle layer. No salt is added to this mixture, as the seasoned bread crumbs contain enough seasoning. Also, the "sweating" of the eggplant (in previous posts) is a good idea. I like to make my own sauce...delish!

Boneless Garlic and Rosemary Rubbed Prime Rib with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce
This was the first time I ever prepared a prime rib. It without a doubt riveled most restaurant prime ribs I have had. I also used beef broth instead of chicken, and used additional dried herbs in the rub. Simply outstanding!

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
